even though i am opposed to organized religion i still do not believe that religion is the cause of most wars. war would still exist in a religion free society. the collective thought process of a religous group is very similar to a tribal or national way of thinking. Homo Sapiens Sapiens is hardwired to fight against his enemies in the name of his tribesmates. This is because of the need to eliminate rivals for procreating and to ensure the ability of his offspring to succeed. This will continue with or without religion until the day we realize or connection with our mammalian roots. Religion may cause problems, but it is not the only reason why mankind wages war upon his brother.
